Referencing is a standardised way of acknowledging the authors and sources you refer to in your assignments.
Cite Them Right is a comprehensive guide to referencing almost any source material you will come across in the course of your studies and should be used by all students using APA, Chicago, Harvard, IEEE, MLA or OSCOLA referencing styles. If you are unsure which referencing style to use please see Referencing Styles by Subject Area.
NB: Students in some Humanities subject areas, such as Classics, Ancient History, History, Philosophy and Religion, may require information in addition to the more general guidance provided in Cite Them Right, see Additional Guides for Ancient Texts.
NB: From September 2022, Cite Them Right guidance style replaces any previous library guidance, including Roehampton Harvard style. The only students who should continue to use the Roehampton Harvard style are those who began an ongoing piece of work in which they have used Roehampton Harvard, prior to September 2022.
For more information on how to use Cite Them Right, please visit the Help & FAQs page located in the top menu bar on the Cite Them Right home page.
Also, try the Cite Them Right tutorials covering topics such as: 'What is referencing?', 'When to reference', 'How to set out citations and quotations', 'How to set out references', and 'Paraphrasing and summarising text'.
